Series vs. Towson
Loyola and Towson will meet for the 42nd time in program history on Tuesday.
• The only program the Greyhounds have faced more than Towson is James Madison, which Loyola played for the 43rd time this season.
• The Greyhounds and Tigers have played at least one time every year since 1977 with Loyola holding a 32-9 advantage in the series.
From 1983-2007, Loyola won 25-straight games, followed by a six-game series that saw the two squads split the victories (from 2008-13), with each winning their respective road games.
Loyola snapped that streak last year with a close 7-6 win over the Tigers at Ridley Athletic Complex.
The Greyhounds are currently on a two-game win streak against Towson, but they've not lost at Towson since a 10-4 decision in 1977.
Overall, Loyola is 17-1 against the Tigers when playing as the away team, winning the last 17.
